This cactus is native to Northern Mexico and Arizona’s desert regions. It has flat wide stems that bear prickles. In the wild they will produce an edible fruit called tunas. With the right care, prickly pear can produce brightly coloured flowers at the top of the stems.

Light conditions: position in bright light.
Neediness: Easy to care for but remember that your cactus needs dusting to unblock its pores, helping it to breathe. Try a make-up brush or an artist’s brush to remove cobwebs and dust
Watering: a prickly pear requires very little watering to keep it happy. You can expect to water every two to three weeks during warmer or when the soil has completely dried out. Your cactus will not need watering during the winter months.
Ideal location: bedrooms, living rooms and studies
Rate of growth: slow growing
Temperature: keep at a normal room temperature
Pets:  this plant is non-toxic to pets but beware of the spikes!
Sizing: W17cm x H30-40cm
Also known as: Opuntia Ficus Carica

♻️It’s not just our products that are green. 95% of our packaging is either biodegradable or recyclable (and we’re working hard on that last 5%). As a company we’ve made a concerted effort to switch to sustainable packaging, it costs twice the price but we sleep better at night. Head to our delivery page, for the full lowdown.

    Nothing makes us happier than making you happy (cheesy, but it’s true) which is why we do everything we can to provide a positive plant experience from start to finish. Your plant should arrive fresh and healthy - if for any reason it doesn’t, we’ll replace it for free within 30 days!

    Your plant has been on quite the adventure to get to you, so it might need a drink and some time to adjust to its new home. It’s perfectly normal that it may be showing some minor signs of stress after shipment.

    If your plant is damaged beyond what you’d expect, let us know within 30 days, and a friendly member of the Plant Folk will be able to help you. All you need to do is take a couple of pictures of the problem area and one of the whole plant and send them to hello@beardsanddaisies.co.uk. We’ll then make things right as quickly as we can, so you can get on with enjoying plant parenthood.
